    Hey guys, I was just wondering what your careers were. I'm a 20 yr old college student finishing up my associates degree this fall and then transfer to a u in january. And I hear poeple around my age saying they are going to law school or businesss school after getting their bachelors, and I don't really have plans like that. I'm interested in working in fashion, so my major is marketing at the moment, and I do want to go to a grad school to get futher education and succeed. so let me hear your guys stories!!

    I went to school, got my Bachelor's in Psychology, and I've pretty much been kicking tires since. I'm a realtor, but I don't really like it. I work to get by, but I'm not really fulfilled with what I'm doing. That's why I elected to take a day off to catch up on school stuff since I've been sick this weekend. I'm not someone who is highly money driven...I have everything I need, and then some. My philosophy is that if it works, there's no need to buy a new one...of anything...

    I had a lot happen these past several years, and now I'm back in school pursuing counseling certification with the goal of getting my GPA up a little, getting a bright and shining score on the GREs and going on to grad school to become a licensed counselor specializing in addictions, or crisis intervention.

    I say find out what motivates you and take that route, and learn from other people's mistakes.

    Spent years working in finance on Wall Street. Good money, but I had no connection with what i was doing. It was just a job.

    Took a few years off (had no debts and no major financial responsibilities). Went back to school for landscape architecture and have been doing that for the last 18 years.

    In 1989, I had to find a job in college when my family hit financial hard times. It was a party planning/balloon decorating company.

    I then had to drop out of college, but really liked what I was doing. It gave me the creative outlet I was looking for.

    I soon became the manager of the company and we expanded to graphic design as well.

    Well, in 2007, after working there for 19 years, I bought the company! It's my baby and I love it.

    Just go what you feel like doing make sure you enjoy it. If you like marketing or law just do it. Never give up on your dreams. Keep chasing them. Once you reach the pinnacle of success you will say " I finally did it!"
    Goodluck and wish you well. Enjoy the journey of life!

    Massage Therapist. Sometimes I feel like I'm underusing my brain but it's highly rewarding and I have had the added bonus of massaging some of the hottest guys in the world and getting paid for it.
